• We are here to help you figure out in which way you will use your Fine Arts degree in your career.

    We see a few options:

    • Get a job full time in your area of study
    • Use the skills in your area of study to work part time and keep your passion alive, and work part time in another capacity to help "pay the bills"
    • Use the transferable skills you have earned while obtaining your degree to work in a different field, while continuing your passion in the arts in extracurricular activities.

    Whichever path you choose to take, we'd like to help you get there and provide the tools to make the best of your future! 

  • The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) is always keeping track of the attributes and transferable skills employers are looking for. You've probably used many of these in your part-time jobs, class projects or coursework, or in your extracurricular activities in campus groups, leadership, volunteering, and other personal projects:

    • Ability to communicate with others inside and outside the organization
    • Strong understanding of role within organization or project (sometimes referred to as teamwork)
    • Making decisions and solving problems
    • Planning, organizing, and prioritizing
    • Obtaining and processing information
    • Technical skills related to the job
    • Creating and editing written reports
    • Professionalism and work ethic

    In addition to those above, there are a few other crucial things you're honing throughout your degree. You might have some of these:

    • Multitasking and time management through going to class, rehearsals, and working in a studio on top of any jobs or other activities you're involved in
    • New approaches and creative solutions by coming up with new logo ideas or ways to portray a character, etc.
    • Receptive to new ideas and change
    • Original ideas and innovative thinking
    • Different ways to communicate ideas
    • Ability to see ideas through completion
 
 

Applying for Internship & Co-op Credit

    • In order to receive academic credit, you must meet the specific class requirements set forth by your college.

      You have until the last day of Final Registration of each semester (in which you plan to intern) to apply for credit. Applicants must allow for up to 10 days of processing. Please do not wait until the last minute. It is highly recommended that you apply for the credit the semester previous to the one you plan to intern.  The application process for an internship and co-op is the same process.

      NOTE: All students are required to meet with Education Abroad BEFORE applying for an International Internship. Students seeking academic credit for international internships must also apply for approval through Handshake.  Please contact Nadine Jones at njone119@kennesaw.edu to schedule a meeting.  For more information, visit the Education Abroad Internships Page.
